It's the Inequality, Stupid

From Mother Jones. Worth a look. If you don't support "income redistribution," can we at least stop redistributing income from poor to rich?
A huge share of the nation's economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244.
